It’s a new season of Quilting Celebrations with Patrick Lose and Patrick has a new “toy”. He’s always been a fan of hand-stitched embellishment on his applique projects and now Baby Lock has a machine that produces the same look in a fraction of the time for those who aren’t as fond of stitching by hand. He’s designed a cute Easter Bunny placemat for this episode and he’ll show you how the Sashiko machine can add even more character to it. In the first segment, Patrick has invited guest Kay Capps-Cross back to his studio to play with the machine and the two will show examples of what they were able to accomplish with it and talk a little bit about the art of traditional Japanese Sashiko.
In segment two, Kay joins Patrick at the Sashiko machine and demonstrates just how easy it is to learn and use the machine to create Sashiko quilting or to simply embellish an already-quilted project.
In the third segment, Patrick takes his turn at the machine to easily embellish the round Easter Bunny placemat he designed especially for this episode. You’ll be amazed at what the Sashiko machine can do. Happy Easter and Happy Quilting from Quilting Celebrations with Patrick Lose!
